Consultation on the neutrality of the NET by the French Government

What does Neutrality of the Net mean: in reference to what? How would one measure it? Is it even feasible? Let us try to shed some light on the subject.

Consultation sur la "neutralité du Net"

Que signifie véritablement cette expression, par rapport à quel concept parle-t-on de neutralité ? Comment la mesure-t-on? Mais surtout, est-elle possible ? Tentons d'y voir plus clair.

EPCGlobal... Standardization is not THE solution (simply a part of it).

EPCGlobal set of standards are one of the best available resources one can use to address traceability issues in closed or semi-open loops.

However, I consider the current EPCGlobal vision and concepts as somehow "limited" in its willingness and capacity to address every kind of actors in any situation (too much standardization, too many deterministic views, etc.).

This is why my company is using different approaches to enhance / leverage existing solutions (artificial intelligence, decisional analysis, etc.).

What has been done on DS (Discovery Services) so far (BRIDGE project, IETF, etc.) is, to my point of view, not always adapted to the market (real life) and I really wonder whether EPCGlobal will succeed or not with such an issue.

Actully deterministic and probabilistic approaches (some of the experimented ones) are not suited to treat complexity...

Very interesting article from Kevin Kelly in WIRED

In a very interesting article from WIRED, Kevin Kelly explains how a "single worldwide computer" will raise from technological evolution.

See : http://www.wired.com/special_multimedia/2008/st_infoporn_1607

I also posted a comment :


One machine” (with a potential finality) or “one system” (with no necessary one) ?

It will be, for sure, a "complex" and non deterministic system made of billions of autonomous and self-decisioned actors (entities) with their own independent finalities.

Referring to "complex systems theories", the question is : "for which global ending ?” - chaotic evolution or targeted direction ?....

In the meanwhile complexity is increasing : it is time to switch to full systemic approaches in the design of our Information systems !

Your comments would be higly appreciated !

Some thoughts on the “Internet of Things” or so-called “Web 3.0”

Abstract :
''Recently, Vinton Cerf made an association between the raising concept of the Internet of Things (“I-o-T” is an abstract gathering several others such as “M2M”, “sensor, mesh, pervasive or ubiquitous networks”, “EPCGlobal standards”, etc.) and the appellation “WEB 3.0” (seen in an article : www.lemonde.fr, 5th april 2008). Instead of seeing it as a new IT marketing stuff, I’ve tried to sort out what need there would be to use such a word, moreover considering that most people still don’t know what Web 2.0 is…..''
